PLACE the tomato sorbet mixture into your ice cream maker. In about 30 minutes, the sorbet will be frozen enough. The time will depend on the ice cream maker, we've used a magimix la turbine a glace.

SCOOP the sorbet into an airtight container and transfer it to the freezer. It can be used for up to 3 weeks. Tomato sorbet can be great as a starter or use as an addition to a starter.
